White House

Rated:

A landmark which seems to be a must visit sight to everyone when visiting Washington. Was what i thought it would be. Only downside was all the political lone demonstrators shouting their messages outside the White House which was a little bit annoying but they have a right to that.

Went here as a must on a short trip to Washington. Expected the building to be absolutely huge but it didnt seem to be from the well protected fence..

Visited here a few times, most recently in June 2018. You can only really visit from the perimeter fence as trying to organise a tour is difficult.
